    $\begingroup$ I want to say "B with the 1 o'clock and 2 o'clock pieces inverted". It would make perfect sense! Rot13(Ebgngr svefg ebj pybpxjvfr naq nqq vg gb frpbaq ebj) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @jafe: Hi. Why are you relating it to a clock? $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 27, 2018 at 13:20
  • $\begingroup$ Just didn't know how else to call them, since "upper right" is ambiguous :) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @jafe. The pattern you described is not the one I intended, but I must say I also don't see the one you suggest. Do you mind being a slight bit more specific: are you following it vertically or horizontally? The one I intended works both ways... $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 28, 2018 at 21:01

If we consider them to be

binary we get $1/1 + 0/1 = 1/1$, $1/2 + 1/3 = 5/6$. Lastly, we have $3/2 + 1/3 = 11/6$ which corresponds to B.
